Further Biographical Context for Pravos Martinek
Born in 1912, Pravos Martinek's creative work was largely inspired by the 1930s. Globally this period can be best characterised by the duelling of the world’s foremost political philosophies - Marxist Socialism, Capitalist Democracy, and the Totalitarianism of both Communism and Fascism. The era took a sinister turn with the advent of National Socialism in Germany, and Adolf Hitler’s rise to power in 1933. The decade would culminate in the inset on the Second World War; a political and social furore that preoccupied not only artists, but large swathes of the global population.
